Starting a Fresh Life

Magazine articles and television documentaries reflect popular concern about living—about styles of living, change of life, leisure living, and about life itself. Symptomatically, the term "life-style" has been thoroughly overdone.

The general interest in living and the common wish to have a fresh life are natural enough. An obsession with the belief of life in matter, though, can lead to a frantic grasping of life that can make us tense, depressed, and frustrated.

To start a new life—for a whole, fresh sense of living to bloom in our thought—these are three basic points: that divine Life is self-expressive, that man is the expression of Life, and Life's man is our true selfhood.
